Saving Grace: A Celebration of Haitian Art

Curated by Gérald Alexis

October 1 – November 24, 2010

Affirmation Arts 523 West 37th Street, NYC

New York, NY Affirmation Arts is pleased to present Saving Grace: A Celebration of Haitian Art, one the first historical exhibitions of its kind in the United States. The exhibition consists of more than 50 artworks including sculpture, paintings and works on paper, most of which have never been seen outside of Haiti. The eclectic selection features art from the 1940s to today and represents the vast variety of styles and influences present in Haitian culture. 

 

Gérald Alexis art historian and author of “Peintres Haïtiens,” a book acclaimed as the most comprehensive study of Haitian art will curate Saving Grace: A Celebration of Haitian Art.

 

In his essay “Haitian Art: A Celebration of its Diversity,” Alexis states: “Already in 1949, during a visit to Haiti, Georges Henri Rivière, then assistant director general of the International Council of Museums, declared having witnessed the most beautiful, the most impressive, the most promising diversity: primitives, expressionists, abstracts—all of them expressing that which is specifically Haitian yet universal as well. …Particularly in these moments of crisis—it is necessary for us to celebrate this diversity.”

 

Saving Grace: A Celebration of Haitian Art opens on Friday, October 1 with a reception at the Affirmation Arts gallery and features the following artists:

“With this exhibition, we are is honored to present the beauty and complexity of these historical works to Americans and the art world at large for the first time,” comments Marla Goldwasser, director, Affirmation Arts. “Against the backdrop of the earthquake’s devastation, we celebrate some of Haiti’s greatest artistic talents and its rich culture.”

 

Affirmation Arts recognizes the importance of the Smithsonian's Haiti Cultural Recovery Project, an ongoing effort to rescue, recover, safeguard and restore Haitian artwork, artifacts, documents, media and architectural features damaged and endangered by the January 12, 2010 earthquake in Haiti and its aftermath.  Two paintings featured in the exhibitionHector Hyppolite’s Pot de Fleurs and Celestin Faustin's Un Beau Rêvewere rescued and restored by the project.

 

Saving Grace: A Celebration of Haitian Art runs through November 24 and will be complemented by the Selebrasyon! festival on October 16.  This free event, to be held throughout the arts complex, will give the community an opportunity to experience Haitian culture through dance performance, live music, art demonstrations, hands-on art projects for children and other activities.
